Elvington flood protection scheme

The Environment Agency has provided the following figures for our Flood Protection Scheme in 2016:The Pumping Station was operational 9 times, and ran for a total of 60 days.Main Street would have flooded on 7 occasions, with a total duration of 52 days.The fact that several properties avoided flooding and that Main Street remained clear throughout the year, should be reassuring to residents - and the Scheme continues to provide ongoing protection.
